One favorite memory I have with the team occurred this past fall when we were playing Texas-Tyler in the Elite Eight. We came back from being a goal down with less than five minutes left in the game and had leaders, such as senior Tyler Vegter, take the game to a whole new level for the team. Then, Trevor Bushhouse scored the first goal of his collegiate career, winning the game in overtime for the team and our school. It was pretty amazing.

My favorite tradition is how we prayed after every practice and game. This kept our focus on God, from whom we receive the gift to play our beloved sport.


Division III soccer is, or at least should be, a completely selfless sport. There are neither financial incentives nor any reason for individual goals. No one remembers individual players in Division III soccer; people remember great teams.


My advice is pretty simple: work selflessly.
